2 Good Sources of Mindfulness/Meditation Activities.

Meditation reduces stress and can protect your immune system. I am trying in these days of working-from-home to still have boundaries- days that are not work days. Like today.

So, briefly, it can be difficult to carve out 10 min to be still and mindful. But often these sessions will regulate and calm you in the moment, and the positive thinking patterns infused here become infectious, popping up where you need them: after hearing a scary news story, when you are in a negative spiral, in the middle of the night.

Deepak Chopra and Oprah are providing free a "Hope in Uncertain Times" series of meditations. The app is a bit clunky to navigate (the series has a cost icon with it but is free) but the content is very good.

My gold standard is Buddhify. Well worth the small cost for the app given the portable strategies you will learn. Try the Stress & Difficult Emotion category because, well, you know.

Stay healthy and have a good weekend.
